Albrecht delight after Are gold

Date Posted: 9th Feb 2007
Category:  Alpine World Cup
Daniel Albrecht from Switzerland stunned the skiing world on Thursday as he claimed his first ever win in a major event at the World Ski Championships.

Those on an Are ski holiday witnessed the 23-year-old secure gold in the men's super-combined with an overall time of two minutes 28.99 seconds.

He pipped Benjamin Raich of Austria into second place by a margin of 0.08 seconds, despite Raich posting the fastest time on the slalom course.

There was more Swiss cheer when Marc Berthod also achieved a podium place, finishing third.

The American Bode Miller, who had earlier finished first in the downhill section, disappointed when it came to the slalom and fell down to sixth place.

Anyone on a ski holiday in Are who wanted to see British skier Noel Baxter in action will have witnessed the 25-year-old come 26th in the downhill, 21st in the slalom, finishing 25th overall.

Previously, Italy's Patrick Staudacher impressed people on an Are ski holiday by racing to victory in the super-G event on Tuesday.
